That crystal ball needs updating

It never fails, it just never fails. The day after I purchased me 27 inch mac desktop they announced the new slimmer model. However since I got mine cheap I figured it was ok. I purchased a macbook air second hand less than a week ago and now they have come out with a new one and I was already hurting having made the choice between intel hd 3000 and 4000.

Can someone please reassure me to let me know I got a good deal? Basically my macbook air is pristine second hand model which was hardly used and is from 2011.

I got macbook air 2011
256ssd
4gb ram
intel i7 1.8ghz
intel hd 3000

I paid 550 quid for it.

The only con is it doesn't come with warranty unfortunately. I have the option of returning it to the seller, shall i go for it? however the ones listed on the mac store of the same spec are around 800 mark. Is spending 250 quid worth the applecare? Please let me know what you think guys if you can be bothered. It would really put my mind at ease with this decision.

Good deal to be fair..

But on another note... do you not do any research before buying your hardware? Apple product launches are always big events and when you're handing out 1-2k for an iMac it does pay to do a little reading?

£650 for a two year old laptop, its a joke surely?

It is always a bit of guess work with Apple launches. I was hoping for a spec bump for imac with haswell today (just so i could get a 6 month old one from the refurb store for a few hundred less than yesterday) but as far as I know that isn't happening. Macbook airs were "nailed on" for an update though. Apple were never going to pass up on a 50% increase in battery life and better integrated graphics that the new intel chips give. A macbook air from 2011 will be only be worth marginally less than it was yesterday, though, so the guy won't be too much out of pocket. The apple logo will still glow white (half the reason people buy Apple laptops it seems).

have you got a mac? much better than any windows laptop at this price. my mb pro has crashed once in 2 years.
Good deal for a good laptop

I can sell my mid 2011 iMac for more than I bought it for God love employee discount (I'm not an apple employee)

False economy they are not, a mac will not depreciate anywhere near a PC will over two years.

Got a 2008 MacBook Pro and it still runs sweet. Good deal

I've been using iMacs since the first intel one and never had one crash? housekeeping is essential despite what people tell you.

I have a 4 year old MBP. Has outlasted 4 Win laptops I have had at work. Build quality is amazing

What you bought was a fantastic laptop in 2011 and still is a fantastic laptop today, If you're going to buy into Apple then you'll have to resist all the hype around these events and realise they're created to make you lust after the 'new' technology and think your perfectly fine MacBook is old and out of date.

By the way I'm typing this on my 2012 MacBook Air which I won't be updating for a while - love it to bits.

I do agree, but even if theres the slightest chance that a range can be refreshed then waiting a day extra is realistically worth it.

Regardless OOS now.

Thank you everyone for your advice, makes me feel so much better.

For the price, it seems to me like you have got a good deal. If you change your mind, sell it on again and you can probably get your money out of it.

Fool, complete and utter fool. Nothing more needs to be said.

agreed with housekeeping, i'm always up to date and clearing things up. it only crashed using windows through parallels. Only use windows for autocad as the mac version is poor. So I blame ms!!

It's a shame as acad was originally written for mac, has it not come on leaps and bounds in the last few years?

I like Mac, but Intel HD Graphics 3000? **** off.

Just got a MacBook Pro retina from Las Vegas worked out at a tad over £1000. It's amazing

Just bought a June 2012 macbook pro from ebay (Completed outside of ebay to save the guy fees and I collected it from London). Immaculate condition (not a single scratch or problem) with an upgraded hi-res screen (not retina) and upgraded to 8gb RAM. 2.3GHZ i7 model.

I paid £950, the guy paid £1700 from Apple 6 months previously. Epic win for me I think. I can still even buy Apple care if I wanted it.
